A violin is a bowed string musical instrument. It is one of the most popular instruments in classical music and is also used in many other genres of music, such as folk and country music. The violin has a wooden body and four strings that are played with a bow. The violinist holds the instrument between the shoulder and chin while plucking the strings with the bow. The sound is produced when the strings vibrate when played with the bow.
